This is Chengyang Fengyu Bridge (Chengyang Wind and Rain Bridge), which is over the Linxi River along Chengyang eight stockaded villages. Built in 1912, the bridge was mainly made of wood and stones. Without a single rivet or nail, the bridge is entirely supported by mortise-tenon connection. Chengyang Fengyu Bridge (Chengyang Wind and Rain Bridge) is a masterpiece of Dong Nationality Stockaded Village and also the best-preserved and largest Wind and Rain Bridge at present. It represents the collective efforts of the Dong Nationality and is a treasure of wooden architecture in ancient China. Serving as an important transportation hub in Dong Nationality Stockaded Village, the pavilion on the bridge accommodates people to rest and gather, sheltering them from wind and rain, so it is called “Wind and Rain Bridge”.
